“November night in the Vagabond”

Posted on: December 2nd, 2013 by Neil

A group of 3 friends and I stayed in The Vagabond for the first time on Friday evening. It was warm, inviting and cosy. The bar was nice, but probably needed a few more bottles of the local grog, but was good anyway. The rooms are clean, tidy and warm.
We enjoyed a good breakfast on the following morning which set us up for a great days walking in Snowdonia. This place is basic but all you need for a group of walkers not wanting to spend loads of dosh.
The location is just a 5 minute walk from the pub which served great food. We will use this place again. Thanks very much.

“A nice hostel with helpful staff”

Posted on: December 2nd, 2013 by Neil

A friendly place that is well run, very clean and convenient. There’s a dry room which is handy and good self catering facilities. A went at a very quiet time but can see that it would be a very sociable place in peak times.

“Great Hostel”

Posted on: December 2nd, 2013 by Neil

Two of us stayed here in November 2013 for a walking weekend in Snowdon. A friendly welcome and warm rooms.A small bar for apres walk beer and easy walk to Pubs and Food in town. The breakfast was a full English and tasty.

The bunk rooms were more than your basic rooms, warm and clean with shower room on the ground floor (not the hottest)…

Our late arrival on Friday was no problem and keys were left in the Key Safe with clear instructions.

The nightly rate for the room was good and we certainly felt we got our money’s worth.

All round an excellent find for a weekend in the mountains with friendly staff!

(Note the bar shuts at 10:30 so no late night noise, which is a bonus)
